The Image Endures

And dying would really screw up Jack LaLanne‘s image.

Jack & Elaine LaLanne in September

So says the original TV fitness guru himself who, at 95, had heart valve surgery last week in California.

To this day, LaLanne hawks juicers and workout videos.

He led America in exercise on ABC through the 50s and 60s with his white german shepherd “Happy” by his side.

No one lives forever.  But if there will ever be an exception, it might be Jack LaLanne.  Here’s a sample why.


About Gerry

I've been covering Connecticut news and sports since 1974. I know, I don't look that old.

  1. God bless Jack, and may he live to see 100.

  2. I just ordered his juicer..hell, I watched him as a kid!!
    For me though, I think it’s a little late for herbicide!

  3. I just read his biography. There is a whole chapter on this video. Jack tried to get the dog to do these pushups. After hours of trying, the dog dropped dead of exhaustion. That’s a dead dog in the background. Happy? Hardly.

  4. Thank you.

    And maybe it’s like that Python skit. Maybe the dog’s like that parrot. Just ” resting. “
